Neesons deserve our sympathy in dealing with tragedy
Many people will sympathise with Liam Neeson and his son Micheal who has revealed to a Sunday newspaper that he went off the rails after the tragic death of his mother Natasha Richardson, following a skiing accident in Canada.
Teenage Micheal descended into a drink and drugs spiral, and he hit rock bottom before undergoing treatment which has helped him to find his way back.
His bitter experience was due, he believes, to a delayed reaction to his mother's death.
Everyone will wish him well and also his father Liam, who has had to deal with so much family tragedy and upset.
